Le P'tit d'Ens
Le P'tit d'Ens was the nickname given to Francis Porte, breeder and cheese maker in Vallée d'Aure, by his grandmother. He took over the work of his uncle and created the cheese dairy of the same name, in the small mountain village of Ens.
Today he has several hundred goats, on land cultivated with care. Here, you can taste 3 types of cheese: tome de brebis, blue, and ... P'tit d'Ens, of course (a soft cheese)! You can buy products from the farm at the end of the day, or meet the producer at the region’s different local markets.

The Vielle-Aure Mining Museum is a unique site in the Pyrenees and an important place for French mineralogy. In this place full of memories, you can discover: an ancient mining site for manganese extraction with preserved and landscaped exteriors, and an authentic mountain mine that’s been reconstructed with a sound and light trail with commentary in French, English and Spanish. The museum covers geology, mineralogy and history through a large collection of objects and documents.
Blessed with naturally warm water that's rich in trace elements flowing from above the Bains de Saoussas, Balnéa thermal baths has a threefold purpose, inspired by three different civilisations.

Finally, in the Tibetan area, soothe your body and mind with tailor-made treatments.
